Instabangers – Cruz Fest 2016

Our favourite Instagrams from the first stop of the Fest Series

The Fest Series is back and the first stop was in California for the Cruz Fest. You know the the drill by now – the World’s best freeriders hang out at jumps that wouldn’t be out of place in an FMX course for big air and good times in a relaxed jam format.

We’re still waiting for official photos and videos from Kyle Jameson‘s Swanpound but until then we’ve rounded up our favourite Instagrams straight from the riders themselves to tell the story of the event.

A taste of the action (video)

Instagram now allows for longer videos which means we can get mini-edits like this. Sick.

A textbook photo with a textbook whip from the Red Bull Rampage winner.

Kyle Jameson

This is Kyle Jameson’s back yard so he’s the man to go to if you want an unusual angle on your pic.

Andreu Lacondeguy

Andreu Lacondeguy is the King of the Fest Series so there’s no way we couldn’t put him in. He makes it easy when he gets inverted like this though.

You won’t often see Brandon Semenuk at a Fest Series event but here he proves he can throw down as well as the rest.

Sam reynolds

Sam Reynolds may have been the only Brit out in Cali but he represented our little island with style.

Graham Aggasiz and Kurt Sorge (video)

Just to give you an idea of how big these jumps are – here’s a little clip from Aggy and Sorge.

When the Fest Series goes wrong, it goes really wrong. Nitro Circus rider, Dusty Wygle, eats dirt.

It’s still so surreal watching mtbs and motos throwing down in the same train.

Kyle Strait and Kurt Sorge

Jump trains for days. @kylestrait and @kurtsorge putting the hurt on this hip. #cruzfest #festseries #rideordie #mtb
